I am pretty close to pulling the trigger on a new bike. Danger Close. I have read reviews and watched some videos, but I am still undecided on which choice to make. Now that the newer models have had a little "soak time" with the general public, I would love to hear some thoughts and reflections between the 2012 Speed Triple & 2012 Tuono V4.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o> I have not rode the Speed, or even sat on one in while. I will do this tomorrow. However, I have been atop of the Explorer 1200 and the Tiger 800. I hated both but I think it was primarily due the fact that triumph sets their bikes up for Gorillas. The Bars are way too wide, and slung too "rock star" low on both. Hence, I don't want to bypass the speed based on previous shitty adventure bike Ergos.<o></o> <o> </o> The DUC, DUKE, and MV are out along with any Japanese offering as I dont want an inline four. Ill be honest, the Aprilia talks to me. I think its a stunning looking bike, and pulls like a freight train when you twist the throttle. That being said, as with any Hot Italian Girlfriend Its going to give you a few problems. I am sure the Triumph is going to be a Proper British bike (insert Clarksons voice here) that will handle well and be butter smooth. But perhaps too smooth? Enough of my ramblings, what say you?
